What is known about the eAdvisor virus?

Under the term “eAdvisor virus” hides the adware[1] program which is responsible for flooding web browsers with various online ads. This app has an official website where it is presented as a browser extension that helps to save money. When browsing the online shops, it automatically generates price comparisons and delivers the best price for the product that interests you. Nevertheless, this add-on seems convenient; cyber security specialists discovered the dark side of it. eAdvisor adware might infiltrate computer secretly and deliver an excessive amount of online ads. Some users complain that these ads appeared out of nowhere and disturbs browsing the web. Indeed, commercial offers and best shopping deals might be bothering if you do not have any intentions to shop. What is more, this ad-supported program might collect some information about you.[2] It tracks browsing-related information, such as what websites you visit, what advertisements you click, search queries, and anonymous technical information (browser’s type and version, IP address, etc.). Collected and analyzed data allows creating user’s profile and based on that you receive targeted ads. Sadly, it might generate so many pop-ups, banners, in-text and other ads that your browser might crash and freeze. Thus, if you do not want to be disturbed by the aggressive advertisements, you should remove eAdvisor immediately. Scan computer with ReimageIntego and let it delete this annoying program for you.

The so-called eAdvisor virus might attack Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and Opera web browsers. Thus, if you have them installed on the computer, you won’t run away from these ads easily. Nevertheless, this tool might provide the best shopping offers; you should not rely on everything you see online. Especially when we are talking about ads. Sadly, they might be dangerous.[3] One or another eAdvisor redirect might lead to the tech support, phishing or other shady websites. Before clicking on the ads, you should think twice whether it’s worth a risk or not. Usually. “too good to be true” often hide something shady. Thus, it’s better to avoid them. However, the best way to reduce your chances to click on a shady pop-up is eAdvisor removal.

After uninstalling this potentially unwanted program (PUP) and fixing each of your web browsers, we recommend you to scan your PC system with a reputable anti-spyware.

For that you can use our top-rated malware remover: ReimageIntego, SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes.

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.

    I hate eAdvisor ads! They made browsing impossible. They popping up constantly, highlights words in the texts and covers necessary content. I cant even count how many times I clicked them accidentally!
